Everything that's sick and wrong (but also so very right) about America in 7 words

Red velvet cheesecake from the Cheesecake Factory.

It's too BIG! It's too ridiculously loaded with calories! It's sort of a disturbing concept, not unlike coffee-flavored yogurt! It's insanely expensive for a single dessert! It wears a scarlet letter "E" for "Excess" on its ample bosom!

But oh my. The people (nod here to Lisa B.). It's just so very damn good. You can ask my mom, too. She'll vouch. The two of us had some for lunch today.

Well. I have only been the CF once, and thought the same as you--huhYOOGE portions, and so have been slow to go there. But sometimes it's kind of fun to do this sort of thing. I feel kind of the same way about those Red Lobster commercials which are basically seafood pornography, and I have never gone, but I kind of want to.

Oh gosh, you two crack me up.

Scarlet Letter "E" for Excessive was brill, Ann.

And Lisa, seafood porn. ha.

Ann, I could just see you and the Rodeo Queen cussing up the dessert.

So compared with red velvet cupcakes, this is the right choice? I think Cheesecake Factory in general is a very dangerous place.
